Talent runs in the family, and especially when that family is Aretha Franklin.

The highly anticipated Aretha Franklin movie, Respect starring Jennifer Hudson comes out this week, and the stars and family celebrated the premiere together this Wednesday night.

While there, Jennifer Hudson introduces the crowd to Aretha’s 15-year-old granddaughter, who shocked the crowd by singing “Ain’t No Way”

Aretha Franklin passed away on August 16th, 2018, but as Gracie herself says in the video, “I’m so happy to see my grandmother honored in such an amazing way,” Grace said before she started to sing. ” ‘Ain’t No Way’ is my favorite song from my grandma, so I hope y’all enjoy it!”

 

What a beautiful tribute!
